CFP: Neal Stephenson
Contributors sought for essay collection on Neal Stephenson; contract
in hand from Cambridge Scholars Press. We are particularly
interested in essays examining Cryptonomicon and the early novels The
Big U and Zodiac. However, essays examining his other work,
including non-fiction, will be considered. Other potential areas of
interest: virtual worlds, "virtual" histories, war and violence,
cyberpunk and post-cyberpunk, digital computers and technology,
Stephenson's place in the contemporary canon.
Please send inquiries or abstracts (Word attachments only please) by
15 January 2006 to <jon.lewis_at_uncp.edu>. Deadline for completed
essays is 21 March 2006.
